The official title of season three is Master of None Presents: Moments in Love. And that’s exactly what it is. The first episode doesn’t follow a typical TV show format, jumping from place to place as it highlights a series of events over a period of time.
Instead, it features snippets from a typical week in the life of Denise and Alicia. The married couple experience several relatable relationship moments, like sexual denials and late-night conversations about whether or not Denise would agree to lick a stinky armpit every single day for the rest of her life in exchange for a major book turned movie deal. (Spoiler alert: She would.)
Although season three is completely different than the first two installments, it isn’t totally free of Ansari. (In the premiere, the comedian makes a brief cameo during a dinner party.)
The first episode concludes with Denise and Alicia facing a relatable decision: Should they have a baby? And if so, should they ask “light-skinned Darius” to be their sperm donor? I won’t give anything away, but let’s just say the first episode left me wanting to binge-watch the entire season, even if it means canceling all my plans.
